Spazzing out

Holy shit! Holy shit! Holy shit! HOLY SHIT!

John Irving is going to be reading in Minneapolis on November 9th. JOHN FUCKING IRVING. Longtime darling ones will understand the absolute joy this moment has inspired in me.

I’m so excited that I have lost all sense of decency and decorum and spent 10 minutes babbling on the phone to the nice man at Magers & Quinn about how fucking much I love John Irving.

    Hi Jodi,
    Just a quick note to say how much I enjoyed flitting about your blog. A fellow Irving fan.

    That nice man at M&Q

    Oh, and by the by. Seeing how much you also love Dylan, you’ll probably be interested to know “Twisted River” was inspired by “Tangled Up in Blue”

    I think the reading tonight with Irving was possibly the best I’ve ever had the pleasure of attending. I went into “goose pimple overload” when, out of seemingly nowhere in a simple aside, he recreated Owen’s “rock dust falsetto” in his own voice. Lucky duck that I was this evening, I got to sit in the front row in the sole unreserved seat next to his wife. It was a simple hoot to watch her react to his closing story about he and his dog’s misadventure with the porcupine. Was that last your question of the night your’s, Jodi?
